What to do with cucumbers
Tuesday, 3rd September 2019 by Rachel

Cucumbers are prolific for quite a large part of the summer and this year was a particularly good year for them – some grew to giant sizes!  

Nutritious, hydrating and low calorie, packed with anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds these cucurbits are so much more than a sandwich filler. If you’re stuck for what else to do with them, then look no further – we have a delicious cucumber recipe line up for you.
